Hi pc40chas,

I think the ULA Force is under the Waterworks label. Waterworks own Lamson so I guess it is a Lamson too. They both probably come from the same factory.

I know that Waterworks reels are intended for saltwater but I don't know how tough they are. If you want light weight then it may be a good choice. They are spendy and that puts them in competition with the ROSS and Nautilus Reels.

As you can see, I don't know the answer to your question. I think Big Cliff recommends these reels. You might want to send him a PM if he doesn't answer this thread.

They are plenty tough. That one in fact is even tougher than the standard ULA force reel because of that reinforcing/protecting ring around the backside of the spool. They're just freakishly light because everything that's not necessary has been eliminated.

Hi pc40chas,

I hope it is just what you want. Don't wait until you go fishing. Play with it a bit and let us know your first impressions.
